We know many of you are eager to come back to our leisure centres again and we fully understand your frustration at not being able to. However, it is likely to be some weeks yet before we can welcome you through the doors again.

We’ve done thorough checks on our facilities and some of them don’t meet the latest COVID-19  government guidance in terms of ventilation within the buildings.

The new national rules mean we need to upgrade our ventilation systems for air to be replaced with a fresh supply, more frequently. It’s an important step to ensure your safety and that of our staff – and it’s one we can’t open without.

The work needed to meet the new enhanced ventilation standards varies from site to site, it would take time to carry out and would also mean significant costs at a time where budgets are already under pressure due to COVID.

In the meantime we have looked at every option to see if we can open some indoor parts of our facilities but it is still not possible to meet the COVID safety guidelines this way. We will however continue to offer both outdoor and online classes, as well as golf at all four of our courses.

We will keep you updated on the progress being made and will announce an opening date as soon as we have one. We’re really sorry, but we are looking forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can.
